11. Gemini G.E.L. online catalogue raisonne
http://www.nga.gov/gemini/

The National Gallery of Art presents the Gemini G.E.L. (Graphic Editions
Limited) online catalogue raisonne, a listing of prints produced at this
Los
Angeles studio from 1966 through 1996. At Gemini, artists including
Robert
Rauschenberg, Ellsworth Kelly, Jasper Johns, David Hockney, Sam Francis,
Roy
Lichtenstein, Jonathan Borofsky, and Richard Serra worked with master
printers to produce editions of prints. Initially the online catalogue
raisonne seems difficult to browse, but the search area provides
drop-down
boxes for artists' names, dates, and series titles, so without prior
knowledge that Frank Stella worked at Gemini, one can still retrieve 93
Stella prints. In the essay section, users can read a series of
illustrated
sections on the history of Gemini, individual artists, and decades, and
link
to larger images. The guide section explains the metadata fields in each
catalog record, such as artist, series, title, and less obvious aspects
such
as "support," which refers to the support each print is on, almost
always
paper, or start date (year the artists began collaborating with Gemini)
vs.
signature date (year the artist signed the edition) vs. publication date
(year the edition was made available). [DS]
